April 23, 2011 at 1:09 AM   |   Comments

SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 (UPI) -- Tommy Hanson allowed three hits and struck out seven over seven innings Friday in lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 4-1 victory over San Francisco.

The Braves scored all their runs in the third and ended a two-game skid.

Hanson (2-3) gave up the Giants' only run and then was backed up by an inning of perfect relief from Jonny Venters and Craig Kimbrel, who collected his fifth save of the season.

The Atlanta third inning began with a walk drawn by Nate McLouth off Madison Bumgarner (0-3) and McLouth went to second on Hanson's sacrifice.

Martin Prado also walked and Jason Heyward singled in McLouth with the first run of the inning. Chipper Jones followed with a two-run double and eventually scored on a single by Freddie Freeman.
